Do you think the condos in Bartley area is a good buy at the moment? There is Bartley Residence, Ridge, Botanique, and Oasis Garden to name a few.

Hey Steve! We love Bartley area – particularly Bartley Ridge. Have discussed this with several homebuyers before. It’s quite centrally located, close proximity to MRT and away from traffic noise Would also recommend Bartley Residence.

The prices of new condos drop because when they are launched, they are asking too high and many people fall for them because there is so much hype about them. However, when the condos are not so new anymore, the reality sets in and the prices will drop as they are not worth the initial launching prices. Only buy condos in areas which have strong fundamentals and are freehold. Resale condos are better choices!

Hi Brendan, yes you’re right. In most cases, the purchase price was just too high, so it’s important to be aware whether one is paying too much. However, it may not always be the case that freehold is superior, especially if the leasehold was priced attractively
